César Chávez Loved His Pets

César Chávez (1927-1993) said that people should learn to “respect all life without exceptions.” He had two German Shepherd Dogs, Huelga and Boycott, and strongly believed that people had to learn to become non-violent toward their fellow creatures in order to be content with themselves. “Kindness and compassion towards all living beings is a mark of a civilized society,” he said.

When Chávez died it had been his request that his brother lay him in a pine casket and bury him in a rose garden with Huelga and Boycott in La Paz in Keene, CA. ❤🐾
